Possible shooting in residential area near Vedder Bridge in Chilliwack

No injuries reported as police descended on Alma Avenue residence late Wednesday night

At least a dozen RCMP vehicles descended on a small residential street in Vedder Crossing late Wednesday night after reports of shots fired.

There were no official details available on the scene on Alma Avenue and police were not immediately available to comment Thursday, but there were no reports of any injury, and the tenants, the property owner and officers were sorting out what happened.

There were nor reports of any injuries, or even confirmation that a firearm was discharged.

One neighbour in the area, however, said she reported two gunshots fired near her home on Saturday night around 10 p.m., then on Wednesday she heard one gunshot followed by the police presence.

Wednesday morning the units in question still had police around them.

Anyone who knows anything more can call police at 604-792-4611 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
